The Majestic
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Sakon Nakhon
Reviewed November 3, 2009

My wife and I have stayed at the MJ 3 times this year-June, July and October. We use it as a base to visit our daughter at Kasetsart University, Sakok Nakhon campus 15 km out of town. Our home is in Ubon.

The hotel is okay. We get a room for 800 baht/night with breakfast. Room is clean, quiet and the breakfast adequate.

Staff are not that interested in guests. Only 1 man at the desk speaks English but as I speak fluent Thai that is not a problem. Last week when we stayed they had no internet computer but they let me use their own laptop as there is a wireless network throughout the hotel. I will bring my own next time. Also in the restaurant for breakfast, the cook cooked up special thai vegetables for me without MSG. Service was great.

I think the hotel is saving on staff as there seemed to be hardly anyone around-only one waitress in the restaurant.

We find the location very convenient. We enjoy the wonderful park about 1 km down the road. Great to walk and jog around in the evening. Then there is the Green Corner restaurant only 500 m away. What a restaurant. Serves Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese and European food; has its own bakery with different breads including wholebread and the usual range of cakes; serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We won't eat anywhere else. Very clean.

I wish every town had a restaurant like Green Corner.

Sakon Nakhon is defintely not a tourist place like Mukdahan and Ubon and not international like Khon Kaen and Udorn. I am just comparing North East Thailand cities.

Therefore don't expect good service and don't expect much English. However, the people are very nice even if they don't go out their way to help you. It is the way they are.

It boils down to this. There isn't much choice in Sakon Nakhon. The MJ is the best one by far.

I am a tourist from Canada currently staying at the M.J. The Majestic Hotel in Sakon Nakhon. I have been here for 1 week. There is a coffee-shop/restaurant near the main lobby and registration desk where you can dine and there is nightly entertainement in the form of a karaoke bar where patrons and staff can sing and share the wonders of song and music...the decor is nice, the food I have tasted is delicious and reasonably priced. When a local friend of mine asked for orange juice on the evening of July 8, 2009, it was not available. I found this very odd in a place where they serve breakfast everyday and orange juice is available in the morning. I felt like I was greeted like a bull in a china shop by the staff... This is low season and business is also slowed down by the world economic crisis so there seems to be fewer patrons than staff. Maybe this is why the personnel looks bored, tired and depressed. They hog the karaoke machine to pass the time. When I tried to ask if I could sing, nobody could answer me in English and they looked at me as if I was disturbing them. There is a piano on stage and a piano man who is very good in Thai music and song but not very familiar with farang music. I finally was able to sing despite the fact I was never invited to do so, I had to cut them off. Maybe it is because I chose to sing in English. I was playing and singing `Let it be' on the piano and a staff member turned music on the computer to cutt me off. I told her she was impolite and she ignored me and gave me the look of disgust.The staff in incompetent in English. I complained to the only person who could speak English at the front desk and the employee finally apologised. Upon my return to the bar the next evening, I was clearly shown I was not welcome, the staff took refuge in a private window-sealed room and they shut off the air conditioner in the bar hoping I would leave... One staff member shouted the `F' while I was singing, a rare paying customer who does not drink alcohol and who is very polite with everyone.... Tey should understand that if you treat customers like this, they will kill their business and eliminate their jobs in the process... Was it because I was a farang? They clearly demonstated their Thai solidarity by making me feel 2nd class...is it because of my race and different culture? This is not traditional Thai hospitality. Think I will extend my stay just to get under their skin. I want to talk to the owner please!

We stay first at Sakol Grand Palace hotel for 2 nights. We moved over the MJ. This hotel was a lot better than the Grand Palace. The MJ is lot closer to the market and town. I planning to go up there for four nights. There's not too many hotels at Sakon Nakhon. The MJ is a better place to stay. They offered complimentary breakfast and staff were very helful with my wife who had cancer.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. It seemed to be a part of Thailand that does not have a lot of tourists. The hotel has very basic amenities. It is pretty much a roller cot in a room with a bathroom. The water pressure is absolutely horrible. I could not take a full shower due to low pressure. Also the main floor bathrooms had cockroaches. I due have to give the hotel credit because the linens are clean and it is a good place to stay if you are only concerned with sleeping. There is also free wireless internet throughout the hotel. I paid 800 B per Night.

Sakhon Nakhon is in the middle of nowhere and good hotels scarce. Most foreign visitors are married to Thai nationals.
We booked a superior room for 850 baht a night (around £12). The room was very spacious, with ample room to walk round and a separate relaxing area with coffee table and lounging chairs.
The hotel including bedding etc is spotless, room service immaculate. Food is excellent and the hotel is smack in the center of town walking distance to shops, bars, and the fascinating locall market is 20 yards away.
Hotel has its own night club or separate 'subdued' cabaret, and a snooker hall.
Bathroom and shower also spotless but go for the 6th floor the water pressure is much higher shower blows you away. And avoid room 414 the housemaids phone is outside the door rings every 2 minutes day and night ! I really am nit-picking now !
You can get a suite for around £35 a night !
